The Community Stage Connections program has connected communities that have limited access to the arts with live arts experiences for 30 years. We currently work with non-profit organizations that serve communities with limited resources and mobility. Working in collaboration with these venues, and a roster of participating performing artists, The National arranges easily transportable theatrical and musical performances free-of-charge for the residents and communities of these venues. With the help of a generous donor that has been supporting this program throughout its tenure, our artists are paid an honorarium for their work. Due to COVID-19, performances have been live-streamed to participating venues since October 2020.
